Question Can new moles pop up at any time?

I am a 23 year old female. This year I have had 3 new moles (or freckles) pop up on my arm. They are small, flat, and round, they don't seem to be misshapen any, they seem symmetrical. Is it normal for new moles or freckles to pop up anytime? If its not normal what else besides symmetry should I be looking for?

Re: Can new moles pop up at any time?

Yes...moles can pop up any place at anytime. Not all are things to worry about, but if they seem to get bigger..get painful..bleed..get itchy or look ragged around the edges have them checked. I've had several pop up within the last 3 years, 2 were cancerous which needed to be surgically removed and others were just nothing to worry about but Dermo Dr. froze them off to be safe.

As I said, many are nothing to worry about but if they seem suspicious to you get them checked for your own peace of mind.

Good luck...JJ...
